The production plan is well-planned to let your workshop bid farewell to the "war" era!

In the furniture production workshop, we can often see some chaotic phenomena. Like the “fighting” scene, the materials are randomly discarded, the processes before and after the semi-finished products are not connected, the materials are piled up and mountains are often piled up, and urgent single-supplied orders are frequently inserted, resulting in production disruptions, uncontrolled quality, and materials. Overstocked parts, parts and finished products . This is by no means a simple issue, while small ones lead to endless overtime work by employees, while major ones result in delays in delivery of goods , difficulties in capital turnover , and gradually affecting the company’s creditworthiness.

Material confusion

The root cause of the above problems is that the production management of the workshop is not in place and there is no effective production plan . A good plan is half of the success, while the other half is in a strict production management system to ensure the efficient implementation of the production plan. How to make a good production plan in a furniture factory and how to implement a production plan has become the key to solving the chaos in the workshop.

Production Management System

1 Accurately analyze production capacity

Accurate analysis of production capacity is the basis for formulating a rational production plan. The lack of an accurate understanding of production capacity and the formulation of production plans based on experience alone are still quite different from actual ones. Accurate analysis of production capacity requires comprehensive consideration of product types, production processes, equipment loads, labor loads, site constraints, storage loads, etc., and the need to consider the balance between various factors , such as the balance between equipment and personnel, and between processes. Balanced and so on.

2 Control Sales Plan

Furniture production companies are divided into inventory type and order type according to the relationship between production, supply and sales . Depository companies emphasize production in accordance with established plans. The sales department needs comprehensive product characteristics, market conditions, sales methods, as well as a balance with production plans and good sales plans . Typically, traditional finished furniture will be delivered immediately after payment by consumers. Order type is to receive the customer orders and then arrange for production , and now the larger furniture companies, especially custom furniture companies, is basically using this approach, can greatly reduce the finished product inventory.

Depository production

The sales plan is divided into an annual plan and a monthly plan . The annual plan sets the total sales target, and then divides into the monthly plan. The monthly plan needs to consider the current order status and the actual load status of the production department , and then submits it to the technical department, purchasing department, and production. The ministry conducts three reviews, and the monthly plan is readjusted according to the actual conditions of each department to achieve a balance with the production plan.

3 Precise material requirements planning

After dismantling the sales order product, the technical department forms a bill of materials and submits it to the planning department for MRP calculation , taking into account the existing materials, planned materials, work-in-process materials, and materials to be warehoused .

Material Requirements Planning

According to the formula: Material Requirements = Scheduled Items + Work in Process + Planned Items - Existing Items - Scheduled Items to form a material requirement plan , which is then assigned to the purchasing department. Eliminate material shortages and excess materials.

making a manufacture plan

Various factors need to be considered before the production plan is formulated. Whether the materials are aligned , whether the product processing processes are connected, abnormal conditions, emergency insertion status, personnel deployment status, bottleneck processes, capacity load, inventory status, shipping and material planning, and outsourcing Parts of the processing cycle .

Process connection

Inventory level

        After the production planning department receives the order submitted by the sales department, the production plan is formulated by integrating the production capacity load, work in process, scheduled plans, and material alignment. According to the product category, color, and components , the same product and components are divided into the same production line for production, improving production efficiency and material utilization . After the production plan is determined, the production department should use the team as the unit to schedule the team task list, the process schedule time can be linked, and the team reserves a certain amount of buffers to avoid over-accumulation and convergence ...
